A word from Miramar Beach Restaurant
The Historic Miramar Beach Restaurant & Bar has a long and colorful history going back more than 70 years. It was originally designed and built as a Prohibition speakeasy to serve the liquor smuggled into the Bay Area through a drop off point on Miramar Beach. We have kept the historical ambiance and décor of the 1920s including an incomparable collection of photos from the era. With only a frontage road between us and the beautiful Pacific Ocean, we have the number one view and sunset on the Coast side. Check out our website at www.miramarbeachrestaurant.com.

    This was our first time at this restaurant and it did not disappoint! The view from this restaurant is fabulous. Right on the beach. And the host is very good about giving you the best table available. Also, our server was excellent. Very attentive, fun, and helpful with suggestions. I had the salmon, and it was excellent. The wine list is very good, and very reasonably priced. And, the live music (piano player) was a really nice touch. This restaurant is a must for anytime that you are in the area (or even passing through).

    Have been going to the Miramar for years for lunch/brunch with family and friends. This latest lunch was with several old friends from our working days. I suggested the Miramar because I know it's a great place for food and ambiance. We were not disappointed. Made reservations through OpenTable (very easy and convenient) and got a nice window table. Wait staff were professional and courteous, the food was top notch (especially the fish chowder - best I've ever tasted). We were not rushed and had a thoroughly enjoyable time catching up on each other's lives since work days. I would recommend the Miramar to anyone looking for a great place to meet their friends and eat some outstanding meals. We'll be doing it again soon...very soon.

    Lunch at Miramar Beach Restaurant was enjoyable, as the ocean view is wonderful and the food is very good. My family enjoyed the shrimp & crab pasta as well as the chicken sandwich with fries, and the waiter was most attentive. Prices are reasonable making Miramar Beach Restaurant a good choice for brunch or lunch.

    If the food quality was just stepped up a notch, this would be on the top of the list for everyone given the location and ambiance. But then they'll likely hv to up the menu price which would put them in direct competition against the Ritz down the road...

    The food that we had was just fair at best. My husband ordered the Petrale Sole which was not as fresh as it should have been. I had the Calamari Steak that was a little chewy and way over breaded. The caesar salad was nice. and we shared a nice bottle of wine on the patio. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone based on the quality of the food.

    Dined on 7/19/2014
    Four of us had a beautiful view of the ocean and luckily some porpoises were entertaining everyone while we ate. The Calamari appetizer came with a cream sauce that was so rich and flavorful we all made the waiter ask the Chef how it was made! Although my scallops were a little smaller than I was expecting, the preparation was very well done and there were a lot of them. I tasted the salmon and the sea bass, both were well seasoned and nicely prepared. The vegetables seemed to be an afterthought on the plate and I found myself dipping them into the sauce that came with my scallops in an effort to obtain some flavor, but that is a very minor complaint! The desserts were both wonderful (Bomba (sp?)) and NY cheesecake.

    Very lovely dining experience with ocean front views, indoors and on their heated patio. Pianist, Terry Disley, plays Thurs and weekends. The entrees that our party of four had were all very well prepared. Blackened Salmon, Petrale, Lobster and Filet Mignon, and seafood chowder were very delicious. Actually better than competitors at other popular coastside establishments. Side vegetables were a bit al dente, Delicious and very well prepared desserts and a lovely wine selection made for a wonderful dinner at sunset!

    With such splendid views of the Pacific, this restaurant is 'chameleon-esque' - would work wonders for a romantic evening for two or a great spot to keep the kids engaged, as they count the rocks on the barrier to the ocean or just a nice big family gathering. Food was good and the wine collection was moderate. We paired the catch of the day with some wine by the glass and it was moderately priced. I would suggest one make a trip to Ritz Carlton for some drinks on their Terrace restaurant and then come in here (5 miles north) for dinner.

    Food was excellent as well as a nice view. The only issue was I ordered the surf and turf which was a special which was good but I didn't ask price as it turned out to be $69.95...wow.. I could have beared that but when the waiter never asked how our meals were was a bit poor. Not a 4 or 5 star experience!! With any meal you expect the service to ask how's the food but when you have the most expensive item you might expect someone to ask?? Our waiter was Jerran D. Also the gal who seated us said her ya go. You would think if properly trained you might say enjoy you meal. Overall good food but under performing service

    We returned to Miramar Beach Restaurant for our anniversary, our last meal there being a long-held good memory. However, the service we received was horrible. After placing our order, the waiter simply ignored us while doting on the large table next to us. Wondering if he thought we weren't going to be a "big tipping" table, since we did not order wine/beer. We did, however, order appetizers, entrees, and dessert. Unfortunately, as soon as my entree arrived I was full from my starter of chowder, so I did not finish my meal. However, the waiter did not stop by ONE TIME to see how we were doing, ask if something was amiss with my food (there was not - it was fabulous, but he would not have known, since he ignored us the entire time).

    Just a few minutes' drive from Mavericks and right on the oceanfront. We made an online reservation within 30 minutes of arriving, and were given a table by the window with a beautiful view, which is really the best attraction for this restaurant. Though the food was not amazing, it was good. We had fried calamari to share for appetizer and fish and paella, and the ingredients were all very fresh. The portions were generous. There was live music by an excellent pianist, and the atmosphere was great. We had a good lunch and a great time.

    One of my favourite spots in the Bay area. I try to have dinner here at least once everytime I visit. The staff is friendly and accommodating, and the food is excellent. The portions are large, and I often have a hard time fitting in my meal after a couple of their amazing starters such as the crab cake! As to be expected the seafood is always fresh and you cannot leave without tasting the bread pudding!
